BIMA Hangouts – Why Mentoring Matters Right Now

Posted by BIMA

BIMA Hangouts – A practical, forward thinking & interactive session focusing on the challenges presented by the Coronavirus Outbreak.

Online Only Event: We will send you a meeting link once you sign up .

In these sessions you’ll be able to access expert support and advice to help you manage the next few weeks/months successfully.


For many of our members, one to one, personal support has never been needed more than it is right now. In this BIMA Hangouts session, we’ll explore the vital role remote mentoring can play in general. And we’ll look at some of the ways joining our Mentoring programme remotely now could help you successfully navigate the next few months.

You’ll hear from experienced mentors about some of the ways they’ve supported mentees in the past and they’ll talk about what they get out of it. You’ll also hear from a mentee about their experience, and the practical difference mentoring has made to them.

Whether you need help, or you have the experience to offer it, this session is a vital first step in joining the next cohort.


The past few weeks have presented many new challenges, which have changed the way we work and communicate. For some we have found that we have more time, which allows for personal development – and mentoring is a perfect way to develop your skills.


Just understanding your options can help you to stay one step ahead. Our Hangouts sessions will cut through the rumour and misinformation and arm you with practical information you can put to work in your business.
